Jeremy Horn is rocking the gay disco entrance music

I knew Jeremy Horn was hard up for cash, but I have to wonder how much money it took for him to agree to walk out at UFC81 to a cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero”:

MURFREESBORO, TN – – 17-year old Siegel High School student, Ashley England will have her first song demo debut for the UFC Championship in Las Vegas. The song “Holding Out For A Hero” was written by Jim Steinman and Dean Pitchford and published by Ensign Music, and was originally recorded by Bonnie Tyler.

Ashley is currently recording her first demo at Affinity Publishing Group, Inc, in Murfreesboro, where she is also a vocal performance student under teacher and producer Angela Anderson of Affinity.

“Ashley is a very powerful singer. When we heard Ashley sing “Holding Out for A Hero”, we thought the song would be the perfect song for the UFC Championship.”said Anderson.

Ashley’s mother, Carolina Gallentine, started making phone calls and was able to get Monte Cox, UFC Manager, to listen to the song. Cox loved it and selected the song to debut in the February 2, 2008 UFC Championship program on Pay Per View for UFC five- time Champion Jeremy Horn who is coming out of retirement. This is a big deal for young Ashley.

“I am so happy because this will be a big deal for my school.” said Ashley.

I don’t know how big of a deal this will be for Horn, who’s now walking in to one of the biggest gay club anthems in history, up there somewhere between “It’s Raining Men” and “Y.M.C.A”.

    I am sure that is the first thing that came to mind.

    I know that when I see Cro Cop almost decapitate people with leg kicks I immediately think OF Duran Duran

    Holding Out for a Hero=WIN. The only thing that would be beter is if it was the version sung by the Fairy Godmother from Shrek.

    “Where have all the good men gone
    And where are all the gods?
    Where’s the street-wise Hercules
    To fight the rising odds?
    Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
    Late at night I toss and turn and dream
    of what I need”

    Is “UFC Championship” the same thing as “PIN Number” and “ATM Machine”?

  • fightlinker

    It’s the ultimate fighting championship championships!

    And hey, just to remind you:

    “five- time Champion Jeremy Horn who is coming out of retirement”

    Ummm…last time I checked Jeremy wasn’t retired….correct me if I’m wrong.

    It could be worse. Everyone could come out to music by Stemm, the godfuckingawful band who does basically all of the theme music for UFC and the Fight Network. I like metal, but that band huffs more cock than George Michael at a portapotty.

  • kentyman

    The only thing manly about that song is Bonnie Tyler’s voice.

  • Dan

    is he also going to be wearing some form of gay diamonte robe when he comes out to that gay music. or is he only having it to fuck off crock cheesner cause he dont like fags?

    either way this is defo the music the next low blow sould start with! you know you wana lol

  • Captain

    I say fuckin A! That entrance will be some gdamn cheesy greatness in full glory.

  • Big D D

    After watching the video,I can’t stop laughing…

  • fightlinker

    He ‘retired’ after his IFL loss:

    But then he came back for Art of War and lost. Maybe the reason he lost was because he didn’t come out of retirement and didn’t train for that fight? Hmm.

  • JJ Smith

    Hey fightfan, that’s funny, because when I saw BJ Penn choke Joe Stephenson out a few weeks ago, I suddenly started singing “It’s Raining Men”. Hallelujah!

  • operator

    I still wanna see the techno viking make his debut.

  • Big D D

    Thanks for clarifying that one for me FL. Way to reach back to ’06 for that link. I like all the colors and the star logo….pretty sexy!

  • Archivist

    I’d suffocate with joy and douse myself in gasoline Vietnamese monk style should Jardine ever give in our Techno Viking demands. Dang, that’d rule.
